It is our pleasure to donate the gift of hearing to the 2012 Rotary TV Auction

Campbell River Rotary TV Auction Donation

When the 38th Annual Rotary TV Auction takes place later this month, successful bidders will walk away with good deals while helping a great cause. For one lucky person, though, a winning bid will also mean a whole new quality of life.

In support of the auction, we are donating a complete hearing aid package valued at more than $7,700 that will be up for bid with no reserve. Because of its expense, we want anyone who’s considering bidding on the item to understand the value of the package so they can feel comfortable placing a bid.

What we’re offering are the most advanced hearing instruments available. We’re also including a wireless package that connects to the wearer’s TV, home phone, cell phone, computer or iPad. I’ll personally make a house call to install these devices should the successful bidder need help with set-up.

Just as important – if not more so – as the device itself, is the custom set-up, unlimited precision fine-tuning and Listening and Communication Enhancement (LACE) therapy that are also included with the package. Using a combination of counselling and interactive software, LACE therapy effectively “retrains the brain” to decipher speech.

Here's what else is included...

It’s not like getting a pair of glasses. You can’t just throw in some hearing aids and expect to hear perfectly, yet 97 per cent of hearing practitioners overlook this crucial therapy. The winner of this package, like every one of our clients, gets free lifetime follow-up appointments, including fittings, cleaning, maintenance and adjustments due to hearing change.

The donation is simply a way to show our commitment to, and appreciation of, this community.

The Campbell River Rotary TV Auction

First off, Rotary International is a great organization. Three years ago, when Jana and I were looking for a place to live and start our hearing clinic, it was the Sea Walk, Rotary Beach Park and Ken Ford Park that impressed us as we drove along the highway. Contributing to the Rotary Auction is a way of thanking the community and all the people who make it so great.

The Rotary TV Auction takes place November 23 and 24 on Shaw Cable, with online pre-bidding opening November 14 at All funds raised will be reinvested in local community projects.

I would strongly encourage anyone considering this item to visit Campbell River Hearing Clinic at 780-D 13th Avenue, or online at, to learn more about hearing aids and hearing rehabilitation. To schedule a free hearing assessment, call us at 250-914-3200.
